I know I haven’t posted much this week, but hopefully next week will be different! Definitely feeling better now.
Things are really taking off in my garden, whether I feel good or not! I look back on pictures of only couple weeks ago and things are so much bigger than they were before. I guess when you see it everyday, you don’t notice the change that much.
I love, love, love these marigolds. Not all of the ones I have are this kind and I have no idea what they are, but they’re so fiery!
See? Stuff is really bigger! I’m not making this up. I need to get some more potting mix so I can put those tall tomatoes in their own big pots where they’ll be nice and happy.
My smallest crystal apple cucumber plant is trying to get going already, and she’s not even planted in a garden bed yet! Well, she wasn’t when I took this picture. I had a head of lettuce mysteriously wilt on me suddenly, so the cucumbers got that spot!
And look at this little guy! He’s almost doubled his height in a few weeks. Good work, Mr. Appletree!
My strawberry plants seem very happy, too. I should be able to pick these in a couple days! Strawberry shortcake, here I come. You know those little sponge cake cups you can buy to make strawberry shortcake in the US? Can’t find them here. Guess I’ll have to make my own somehow…or maybe I’ll do cupcakes. I’m starting to drool just thinking about it.
I saved the best picture for last (in my opinion, anyway). My first nemophilia flower opened yesterday! I watched the flower bud over a few hours and the last time I checked on it, it had opened! Since then, a few more have opened up in that tire and in the back, there are a few out there, too! I’m so excited :) They’re so dainty. I know I crowded them pretty badly in the tires, but I’m hoping that the tires are deep enough for them to forgive me.
How are your gardens looking? If it’s winter where you are, I hope you’re snuggled up nice and warm!
